At 145,000 miles I have no TCC issues even under load going up hill in Overdrive..
Also whats the condition of the fluid ?
I'm no expert on the condition of the transmission fluid... The stuff looks pink, does not smell burnt, and is up to level as defined by the users manual.
My only complaints about this tranny, ( other than the surging issue) are:
1.) Everytime you let off the accelerator, the TCC disengages.... even if you're doing 70 mph....... WTF is up with that ? That just seems like such a ridiculus thing to do, unless the object is to expose the TCC to unnecessary wear.... I hear this is by design.
2.) I can be going along at a constant speed and then gradually start to push down on the accelerator.... like at the bottom of a slight hill. I would expect the transmission to stay in that gear since the speed was approximately the same, but more demand for power being called upon by the motor..... But, all of a sudden, the transmission shifts up and now there'* not enough pulling force to handle the hill. The accelerator then has to get pushed down more until finally the computer shifts down 2 gears..... It'* almost like the "shift-tables" in the computer have too much weighting on the speed variable on not enough on the throttle position...... That'* just my uneducated guess.
I really do appreciate all you guys input.
